evolving relationship with the new libyan government to control al-qaeda's presence and respect their sovereignty. where do we go in this evolving arab spring, in libya in particular. >> a lot of this takes time. building up a strong system of government, institution of government libya in particular build gadhafi never wanted an institution that would rival his him. every political faction within libya has weapons and obviously at least one of them or more used them on the consulate a few weeks ago. >> eliot: what i hear you saying, and what i think is critically important, after the revolution after the sort we witnessed and facilitateed in lib y things evolve. and the president used the phrase, there will be bumps in the road. the arc of any evolution is that it evolves over time. diplomacy could be a problem when it is so needed. >> there is a strategy, turning the opposition that overthrew gadhafi into a functioning government and help that government blow a popular support--grow a popular support. that will take time. there is a strategy, but where romney gets it wrong is

. because i already called the race two nights ago. so the question is for you an governance perspective, you are dealing with an economy that has grown at a rate that nobody is happy with so what are you going to do? >> we need every single voter engaged. as you know from your lifetime in politics elections are long and very complicated processes, a lot can happen in 40 days, so we'll keep pushing forward until the end of this thing. in terms of the economic questions for the president he is going to do what he has done throughout this campaign, where we started and what he inherited. we boss 3.5 million jobs headed into the first six months before he took the oaf value office. and what he has done to move us forward. and we're going to talk about the things we want to do and the plans he has to move us forward. some of the plans are on the table and have been obstructed by congress like the american jobs act, and some of these plans he has outlined on the stump and in our advertising, in terms of the energy solution investments in education and infrastructure. so

on government. who believe they're victims. who believe government has responsibility to care for them. who believe they're entitled to healthcare and food, to housing, to you name it. >> eliot: while mitt romney and his super pac allies have raised more money than the president and his allies, the margin is surprisingly small. according to the "washington post," the president has raised $779 million just $5 million less than the republicans. the democrats have spent more, $612 million. there is help on the way for the campaign. democratic super pacs have started to bring in large donations. politico is also reporting today that financier joe is giving a million dollars to priorities u.s.a. action, a super pac supporting the obama campaign. federal lecture laws give the white house an advantage in the spending wars. "the washington post" reports while the president's campaign controls most of his funds, much of romney's cash is actually being held by a g.o.p. committees and other interest groups because candidates enjoyed

and the republican state government. we said everyone they purge we're going to register to vote. just a few weeks ago we had letters. citizens receiving a letter saying we think you're dead. i couldn't stand by and i'm delighted to have joined the congressional black caucus to be one of ten states under our jurisdiction, two cities in the state -- two cities in the state of texas. houston had a great great press conference going forward. and i just want to show you that business sign that we had up and we had over 50 people that were at the press conference telling people to come out. we did eight sites and we went around to most of those sites allowing people to come, free parking. whole idea is to stand up and refute and rebut that everyone wants to fraudulently vote. that voting is illegitimate as opposed to legitimate and so what we said, purge one register one. and we said we're going to legitimize and make legal the process of voting not with intimidation but with a welcome mat. we're excited about it. you know what els

. whereas commercial banks have deposits that are sticky because they are government guaranteed, so they are stable. citi relied heavily on wholesale markets -- >> eliot: let me jump to the issues that you focus on. they didn't do anything for the mortgage relief that was critical for the economy. >> no they didn't. we had some soft language theying they should do their best which they agreed to but didn't do that. >> at the moment tim geithner said i have what you need -- they didn't reform anything. why not? >> because they didn't really need capital. citi needed capital. the rest of them had liquidity needs, but they were afraid if they put too many conditions or restrictions the healthy banks wouldn't take it. so if you -- at chase or wells fargo, they still have pretty strong balance sheets and they are saying we are going to make you take this capital, and by the way you have to do x, and z. >> eliot: and then we didn't solve the financial crisis and that has continued to be a huge perhaps more fundamental drag on the economy. >> it has been. and they had
